Please complete these two COVID-19 forms 24-48 hours prior to your appointment.
Our Common Goal is to Keep Everyone Healthy.
To help prevent the transmission of all respiratory infections, including COVID-19, we adhere to the highest standards of infection control. We follow routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, using environmental-safe cleaners to clean surfaces prior to applying an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant, as well as appropriate sterilization of all instruments and equipment. We also use facemasks, shields, and gloves for each patient per guidelines set by the ADA, FDA, and CDC.
While our office already adheres to these high standards, there are several common-sense recommendations we are implementing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Screening patients for signs or symptoms of infection when we update their medical histories.
- Making sure our masks, gloves, and eye protection are appropriate for the procedures performed.
- Cleaning and disinfecting public areas frequently, including door handles, chairs, and bathrooms.
- HEPA and Ionic air purifiers.
- Front desk acrylic barriers
- Fast Check-out with electronic payment.
- Online scheduling - (coming Aug 2020)
- Daily Anti-viral fogging with environmental-friendly Hypocholous Acid
If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please contact our office if you experience any of the following:
- Fever 100.4 or higher.
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of Smell or Taste.
- Travel within the past 14 days to affected geographical regions
We will discuss your health status, the dental treatment you require, and whether or not visiting our office will be safe for you, our other patients, and our staff.
When you visit our office, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment, rather than too early. This will minimize the amount of time you spend in our waiting room or reception area. If you have respiratory symptoms, we will ask that you wear a facemask.
How can you prevent contracting or spreading COVID-19?
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Do not use your hands.
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention, and call in advance. Calling in advance will allow your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility.
- What if I just have a Cold or Allergies? Read below.
Please contact our office if you were diagnosed with COVID-19 within 14 days of being in our office for contact tracing purposes.
